Police training to draw Occupy Oakland protests Friday

OAKLAND, Calif.

By coincidence, thousands of police will be downtown for a three-day training exercise.

Urban Shield is designed to train officers for terror attacks and disasters.

Our media partner, the Oakland Tribune reports: Protests are planned at the Marriott City Center Hotel where vendors will be showing off the latest police weapons.

Occupy Oakland also plans an evening rally at City Hall.
